NEW! Drop Down Now Included In Vertex

This month another new addition to the Vertex Framework is the S5 Ultimate Drop Down. This is a feature that was seen in several Shape 5 designs. Many have asked how to add to other designs so we decided to build this into the framework so every design here on out will have this functionality. Be sure to read more about this new feature here: Features:

  • Customize almost everything! Shadows, borders, gradient, opacity
  • Contains 6 module positions drop_down_1, drop_down_2, drop_down_3, drop_down_4, drop_down_5 and drop_down_6
  • Auto adjust to the height of your content
  • Set your own open and close text
  • And many more features!

Who would have thought that children prefer to sit and read and build puzzles, rather than playing outside with balls, hula hoops, and skipping ropes? Who could have imagined that children would want to attend a literacy class, instead of playing games? Well, it has eventually happened!

A few months ago, a beautiful 12 year old girl in grade 7 expressed with great excitement her wish to read aloud from a book. She initially struggled and stuttered over the words, but courageously pushed through. The book from which she read was meant for children aged 3-5 years. One’s heart goes out tosuch a child – only one among many children that have a basic literacy problem.

Our Zoe Trust team sat down together, brainstormed, consulted and eventually decided to implement the SmartBrain course (www.smartbrainsa.co.za). This was no easy task, and required hard work from the ‘teachers’, seeing as they did not have the opportunity to complete their own schooling, and had to first master the course themselves.

During the July school holiday they presented their first demo class, which turned out to be a major success. From August, basic literacy classes will be presented for different age groups at our home in Badsberg Close, Heideveld. An additional classroom has been built in the backyard of Ouma Joan (our neighbour) in order to accommodate more children.

We are also very excited that our “Babbelbekkies” informal early childhood development classes will be presented five days per week instead of only once a week. Everyone in our area will have to get used to hearing the sounds of the A, B, C…!

While there was time to play with clay and jump rope, puzzle building and reading were the more popular holiday activities in Badsberg Close! Thank you to the youth from Fresh Wind Ministries who so eagerly participated in the holiday programme (www.freshwind.co.za).
